MC Ding Dong Accused Of Physical Abuse
MC Ding Dong, a popular South Korean show host and MC has recently been accused of physically abusing an MC trainee under him.
The Seoul Mapo District Police Station released a statement on July 9th saying that they received a complaint from an unnamed MC trainee. According to the trainee, MC Ding Dong would throw microphones at him while sometimes even grabbing and pulling his hair violently.
In addition, the trainee has revealed that he has been hit in the face as well by the MC.
But while physical abuse and assault is the main issue regarding the accusations, the trainee has also stated that he would often have to be on stand-by mode beside the MC while he parties and attends gatherings for drinks. The trainee would work until on some days well up to 4 AM and even sometimes babysit the MC’s children, something that isn’t part of the training.
At the moment, MC Ding Dong has denied the accusations and stated that he provided every opportunity for the trainee to make connections and learn how the industry works. In addition, MC Ding Dong has stated that the trainee is attempting to blackmail him. The MC claims the trainee secretly took photos of him during alcohol parties and demanded money in exchange for the photos.
In the current situation, it is one person’s word against another as there hasn’t been any evidence suggesting that either side’s story is true.
